OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) - A persistent lake-effect snowstorm has battered parts of central New York and more is on the way.

The National Weather Service says up to 28 inches of snow has fallen on areas of Oswego County since Monday, thanks to persistent bands of lake-effect storms coming off the eastern end of Lake Ontario.

The storms also dumped snow on northern Onondaga and Madison counties and central Oneida County, including Sylvan Beach on Oneida Lake.

The weather service has issued a lake-effect snow watch for Jefferson County from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. More than 20 inches of new snow could fall on Watertown and the nearby Tug Hill Plateau area, and temperatures are expected to reach lows of minus-7 degrees by Wednesday.
